I am VERY pleased to announce that the Audible.com production of my book VERMEER: PORTRAITS OF A LIFETIME has been released and is now availabe through AUDIBLE.COM.  The book narration is performed by Mr. Alan Douglas.  Here is a brief overview of the book:

“Vermeer: Portraits of A Lifetime is a revolutionary reexamination of the mystique and mythology surrounding the 17th Century Dutch Master painter, Johannes Vermeer. For the first time in over 300 years names of people who posed for his paintings are identified. An unknown portrait of Vermeer, painted by his friend, Gerard ter Borch, is exposed. This book is an empathetic retrospective, built on observations that reveal answers to dozens of speculations about his paintings, his wife, his daughters, and contemporaries who were the subjects of his art, and with whom he shared his brief life in Delft. The PDF version of this book includes full color plates of each of the remaining works of Vermeer. The paperback version contains black and white plates of each of his paintings. Researched and written by Lawrence R. Spencer, author and master oil painter who, without training, “remembered” how to paint at the age of 30.

The few existing paintings by Vermeer our priceless works of art, housed in the most prestigious art museums of the world. In July 2004 Vermeer’s painting Young Woman Seated at the Virginals’ was sold at auction for $42 million. The value of an undisputed Vermeer would likely exceed $100,000,000. The authenticity of Young Woman Seated at the Virginals is disputed which explains the relatively low sales price. Because the few authenticated Vermeers are all in museum collections , the only way to acquire a Vermeer is to steal one which happened in 1990. The Concert was stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston and has not been recovered.”

Publisher’s Summary of “Sherlock Holmes – My Life”, by Lawrence R. Spencer

A memoir in which Sherlock Holmes discloses a conspiracy, between Dr. Watson and Dr. Arthur Doyle, to publish his real life adventures as works of fiction. Mycroft Holmes, his brother, aided by the British Secret Information Services, is solicited by Mr. Holmes to assist him to resolve the most infamous literary fraud in history! Their investigation of the doctors, publishers and politicians who collaborated with them, exposes the scam as well as the farcical claim to knighthood of “Sir” Arthur Doyle and his life as an opportunistic hoaxer. The conspiracy to erase the real person of Sherlock Holmes by portraying him as a fictional character is exposed for the first time.

In retrospective retirement, Mr. Holmes describes the unrecorded adventures of his life: encounters that influenced the literary creations of Lewis Carol, James Barrie, Mark Twain and Bram Stoker. The book confides details of his use of alchemical potions, his family, and sexual preference. His personal philosophy is expressed in several poignant personal letters.
